Hi everyone! This fall, I will be running the NYC Marathon as a St. Jude Hero!
For the first time I have chosen to run for a reason bigger than myself by fundraising for the kids and families at St. Jude!
We all know people who have had their lives affected by childhood cancer. I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like for the parents and siblings of the kids who are fighting these diseases. These children are inspirational little warriors, and they deserve to have every ounce of help that we can give them!!!
So why did I choose St. Jude?
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and they won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Donate today to help me reach my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
